This week there are no labs or doctor’s visits or pieces of my house that fell down or phantom illnesses that cause me to lose sleep or…
Actually, Ana did get her blood pressure checked on Monday at Dr. Denno’s office and it was normal, but Dr. Martinez is keeping her on a low dose of blood pressure medication until her follow-up visit in September.
SEPTEMBER! Ana’s follow-up visit isn’t until September!! And she’s back to getting labs drawn every other week so there were no needle sticks yesterday. She is feeling well, though getting various side effects from various medications. Dr. Martinez called me on Monday to talk about some strategies to help Ana deal with that (e.g., she’s getting a lot of headaches, experiencing some stomach pain from the Cellcept, etc.)
Since nothing is really happening except, you know, tons of healing and getting back to normal, I’m going to take a two week hiatus from the blog. Jim and I discussed moving it over to a different domain (healingana.com) so I can give her back her domain, but still stay connected to everyone that’s been a huge part of this journey from the beginning. We still need you and we are very, very grateful for all of your support. We want to keep everyone informed of Ana’s progress too. Hopefully it will be a quiet couple of weeks! Over and out (for now).
